Inspired by Haikyu!!, I’m making Japanese Beef Curry Rice. I’m so excited to be finally sharing with you one of my go to recipes from this winter.
The curry is really easy to make, so it’s no wonder it is a staple in many Japanese homes. It has become one of ours and it should be for you too! This dish is warm, cozy and comforting, and you can change it up depending on what protein and veggies you are in the mood for or depending on what you have at hand. I personally love Japanese sweet potatoes and think that they are a perfect addition to carrots and beef.
At your asian grocery store, or online, you can easily buy curry roux blocks to use for this dish (which is what most people do). Unfortunately, I have yet to find a gluten free version in the store so I make my curry roux from scratch for this recipe. It barely takes more effort so I highly suggest that you try making it yourself. Plus, there are a number of different brands and heat levels that you can buy in store. I have heard that a lot of them are really good, but I can only vouch for my homemade roux, which really is delicious!
This meal also keeps well so it’s a great big batch for dinner and then lunches the following days. Anyway, curry rice is a dish that we’ve seen in a lot of anime over the years and each time I find it looks so fantastic. Rewatching Haikyu!! and seeing Noya and Ryu desperate for more of Kiyoko’s curry, I knew I just had to make it at home. Make sure to serve the curry with freshly steamed rice and you’ll be just as desperate for more as well!

I have a question about your Japanese beef curry rice recipe. It says beef chuck chopped into 1 -2. What does that mean? Also you have a typo next to the garlic. It says mined not minced.
Thanks for this! Sorry about the typos.. I fixed it now. You want the beef to be in 1-2 inch chunks, nearly bite size (max 2 bites). That way you get more chunks throughout the curry! I hope you enjoy this recipe 🙂
